International Travel Health Insurance

Faculty and Staff Colleagues:

If you have plans to travel abroad -- or should such an opportunity arise -- you need to know about the new International Travel Health Insurance and Emergency Services Program, recently adopted by the three Regent universities.  The program is mandatory for faculty and staff who are traveling internationally on University business.  It is also mandatory for students participating in study abroad programs or traveling independently for various purposes.
